Vanilla Ice Cream


Here's another way to prepare ice cream without an ice cream maker, and it relies on gelatin sheets for the desired consistency. The milk iin the ice cream base is first infused with a vanilla bean for the classic flavor before being used to make the classic custard base wtih egg yolks, sugar, and cream. When using gelatin sheets, they need to be softened in cold water before dissolving in the hot liquid.

  • 1 vanilla pods
